Can I tell you a secret? I’m not really that confident. If you’ve met me, watched my YouTube videos or attended one of my Pilates classes, you’ll probably think differently but deep down I am quite reserved, shy and often have mini freak outs before meeting new people or attending events. I’m so envious of those people with big personalities that can own a room but I’m not naturally one those people. I love my own company, being quiet and spend a lot of time in my little safe “Lottie bubble” or with my close group of friends and family who know me best but I know if I stay in that safe bubble all the time, I won’t grow and thrive and live the life I know I’m meant to live…
I have big plans, goals and dreams and I know I don’t have to win the loudest in the room award to achieve them. I’m not faking it or hiding anything when I do appear confident, I’ve just likely taken a good few deep breaths and said to myself “confidence is in you and you can do this” beforehand.
I basically want to say that even if you’re not a naturally confident out going person then you can still achieve and do all the things those big personality people can. Stepping out of your comfort zone is scary but every single time I taught a class with butterflies in my stomach or introduced myself to a new person or uploaded a YouTube video, I felt alive! The secret to being confident is to dare to be!
Love, Lottie x
